SANTA MARIA NOVELLA

Pharmaceutical perfumer’s workshop Santa Maria Novella from Florence is one of the oldest pharmacies in the world. Founded by Dominican Friars shortly after 1221. The Fathers initiated them to cultivate medicinal herbs in their own garden and preparing it to make medicines, balms and pomades for the monks’ infirmary. When news of the quality of the products produced by the pharmacy reached the outside world, it was decided to open to the public. From this period, throughout the centuries, they were acclaimed and they set for goal to transcend boundaries, still being managed by Fathers, which continued until 1866. Following the confiscation of the church assets by government, the company became a state owned enterprise, however it was ceded to Cesare Augusto Stefani, the nephew of the last monastic director. From this moment four generations from the same family have succeeded to manage it. Today, managed by Eugenio Alphandery, the ancient tradition of herbal care both perpetuates and renews. Using only raw materials of the highest quality continuing to follow the ancient procedure originated by the founding Friars.  All the preparations are based on traditional herbs and oils of natural origin and focused exclusively on the herbalist’s art. Furthermore, none of its products are tested on animals. The vast majority of the medicinal herbs used in its products are grown locally on the hills around Florence. All the production is done thanks to engines which are especially studied allow for company’s particularities. Each product tells a story, for example “l’Acqua della Regina” was originally created for Catherine de Medicis, the queen of France. Also, we can not forget famous recipes as Liquore Mediceo, Alkermes, Elisir di china and Acqua di Santa Maria Novella made with famous Santa Maria herbs for its relaxing qualities. To create the cream line for treatment and hygiene on body and face were used others than herbs, plant and flower essences, vegetable oils and powders from exceptional flowers drying and gridding. Mezzatorre Hotel, La Posta Vecchia and Il Pellicano Health & Beauty Clubs enjoy the presence of the entire line of Santa Maria Novella products to realize each of our “Rituals”.
